What are the benefits to buying an electric bike?

There are many benefits to buying an electric bike:

  • No License or Registration needed!
  • Energy Efficient - Electric bikes consume energy at an average rate of 100-150 watts of electric energy, compared to 15000 for a car (the car does travel faster of course).  Imagine a 100 Watt light bulb burning continuously through the night - that is enough energy to propel an electric bike for 40 miles.   
  • Cost-Efficient - An electric bike typically costs $0.05 to run per mile, while a car can cost up to $0.50 per mile.  You can drastically reduce your costs by choosing e-bikes over cars.
  • Green - When an electric bicycle replaces a car, it offsets 1460 grams of carbon monoxide, 1550 grams of globe-warming hydrocarbons, and 770 grams of nitrogen oxides for every 500 miles traversed.
  • Fitness - A recent survey found that 33% of electric bicycle owners ride their bike at least once a day and 80% of them ride at least once a week.  Only 10% of conventional bicycle owners ride their bike once a day and 45% of them ride once a week.  These percentages confirm that owning an electric bike compels you to use it more, hence enabling you to exercise more.
